American Estates: BriarWorks Icarus Crimson Sandblasted Volcano
Product Number: 004-009-9839
Take the classic Volcano, or the classic Poker, then forget about either one. Why? Because this Icarus bears about as much resemblance to either as a modern Mustang does to a Model T. The lines here are swift and forward, streamlined in character — even despite shaping up a rather tall bowl, a broad underside, and a concave leading edge. In other words, not your father's Volcano. As for why I mentioned the Poker, it's simply because this Icarus is an excellent sitter. I didn't expect it to be, what with the rounded rather than paneled underside and all, but that expectation proved wrong. In fact, it's the rounded nature of that underside which allows it to sit so well, rolling back so that, from side-to-side, it's stabilized by the wide arc of the rear edge, and the end of the shank comes to rest while keeping the stem still elevated.
